We would like to invite all stakeholders with interest in low ILUC-risk biomass certification to provide feedback on the draft certification guidance.
In 2021, E4tech worked with Frazer Nash to deliver a project for the Western Isles Council (Comhairle nan Eilean Siar), assessing the feasibility of a green hydrogen hub for the Outer Hebrides. We are excited to hear that the council has been awarded pathfinder funding, as part of a £1 million Green Growth Accelerator Programme (GGA), to develop a business case for the hub. E4tech undertook an economic impact assessment which showed the significant benefits that the hub could bring to the Western Isles economy.
In a first of a kind study, ECA and E4tech undertook a detailed assessment of the energy needs and infrastructure across the Energy Community Contracting Parties to establish the role for hydrogen in achieving decarbonisation. Given its extensive gas infrastructure network, industry sector and good conditions for renewable energy production, Ukraine holds the highest green hydrogen development potential. For each Contracting Party, the study assessed the drivers for introducing hydrogen, its potential production capacity, availability of delivery infrastructure and potential hydrogen applications.
E4tech analysis, part of the Scottish Hydrogen Assessment led by Arup, suggests that the hydrogen industry could be worth up to £25 billion a year to Scotland by 2045.
The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Observatory (FCHO) which aims to be the go-to source of information for the sector, was launched in a webinar on 15 September 2020 attended by over 1400 interested participants
